I've been out in my workshop all afternoon, determined to get it to a point that I'm not completely grossed out to be working in it. It is rustic, to say the least, but it's all I have and I am thankful it gives me someplace to work on projects, other than my kitchen table.
Since I don't have a project to share with you today, instead I thought I'd share another tip for those of you with Silhouette machines. I love using my Silhouette machine to design my own signs, but what I don't love is all the little pieces I need to replace inside letters like A, P, O, D and B. When you use fonts that are stencil style, the letters remain connected together, so you don't end up with so many pieces to replace.
Occasionally a few of the letters do require some replacement, but very few compared to using a regular font.

These fonts will automatically be available to use on your Silhouette once you download them, the same as any other font you could use with Microsoft Word. There are many more available. My favorite source for fonts is dafont.com and you don't have to install anything to download the fonts.
